Chef Gosselin Corn Chowder

The whole month has been a soup and stew month. I am going to share some recipes that made me smile. I am currently making a crock of corn chowder and this is really great. Every recipe was made in the crock pot so I prepped the ingredients and in they went. Later that early evening I try a bowl and the rest gets container stored for my work week. I do love a nice soup for lunch in the cold weather. Let’s make some Corn Chowder.

1 cup carrot, chopped
